Tag Days of Summer!

The FUN! begins at 2:00 p.m. rain or shine. Shoes or no shoes. Wear your play clothes; mud stains are inevitable and are worn as a badge of honour. Expect to tease and be teased, run, jump and possibly slide! Laughter, sweat, grass stains and breathlessness are common side effects – though a well deserved euphoria kicks in eventually too. Hope to see you there!

1:45   Mix and mingle and set up the field
2:00  Let the games begin!
4:00  Wrap it up

What you need:
Clothes you can get dirty in!
Shoes you can run in
Layers (you will get hot, then cold)
Snacks (good enough for trading)
Water (juice if you're a fancy-pants) <--- We won't have any with us.
A Twoonie for the piggy to donate towards building the FUN.

Be aware that playing tag requires a whole lotta fast moves in every direction! The fun you're having can distract you from realizing the demand on your body. Be mindful of your limits; we do not have a first aid attendant at the park. Please come prepared with anything you may need to mend yourself.

Meet at CLARK PARK <--- click for map.

Clark Park is kinda laid out in tiers. The high end borders Commercial and 14th. The low end borders Maddams and 14th. We’ll meet at the lower end at 1:45pm.

Here's a picture, courtesy of Google (we're under the tree by the red car on the right):

If you’re walking up from the Broadway Station Skytrain, there’s an entrance to the park on the corner of Commercial and 14th – just head downhill to find us. The park’s relatively small so if you get lost we reserve the right to tease you ;)

Final Notes:

There's no potty in the park. It may be good to show up on empty. Just saying…

This group is intended for adults (19+). We have no age cap; elders are welcome. If you would like to bring someone under 19 to the games, please email Chris or Michelle.

    It is unusual . It shouldn't happen to anyone but weekend on Granvile street is chaotic. Get well soon

    Just an update. I had to go down to the Vancouver Police Department in person to give a statement even though they had taken one over the phone. The police officer who took my statement at the station actually laughed! Not at me but because the incident is so bizarre. She works Granville and what happened doesn't fit anything she knows. It doesn't bother me because I don't understand it either. She was also quite surprised I didn't have a concussion from the pictures I showed her. It looks like somebody hit me across the side of the head with a board. Anyway, she said they'll send it to the crime analyst and look for patterns. It may be a one-off random thing or a trend somewhere. But just be careful out there. Be aware of what's around you. And thank you to all of the people who wished me well. It is much appreciated.

    Noooooooo! Chris was shirtless and you guys have a new blankey!!!! Sorry I missed that! And Rhonda sure dances a lot. What was the trophy given for?
    (P.S. I reported the sucker punch to the police. It might help.)

      That's an oooooold blankey. It's supposed to be a banner hung on a rope - we're sitting on the writing on the other side.

      Trophy was for the boldest tagger who went to try to get others to join. A guy did join us, but ended up leaving because the idea of unfreezing by crawling between someone's legs was too much for him. :-D

    I am sorry that I have to change plans at last minute. I won't be able to make it. I will join you the next one for sure. Have fun

    I'm sorry but I'm going to have to bow out of this one. Friday night on Granville Street on the way to the Skytrain Station I got sucker punched for no reason. All I was doing was crossing the street, listening to music, looking at my phone, and suddenly something slammed into the side of my head. My vision cleared after a few seconds and fortunately no cars were coming because I was bent over on a major street. I got home okay but it's not pretty. So on Sunday I don't want to risk a bigger goose egg than it already is.
    Sorry about that.

    Hi everyone, I am new to the group. I am a bit bummed that I won't be able to join you guys for this event as I have family commitments that I can't get out. Hopefully I will get to meet everyone at the next event. Have fun tagging!!!!
